There was protest action by the Antigua Trades and Labor Union (AT&LU) at Diamonds International in Heritage Quay this morning.
Antigua News Room understands that the Shop Steward for the workers of Diamonds International, Geraldine Thomas, was not allowed the time to attend the 78th Delegates Conference of the labor union by her employer.
In solidarity with their comrade, the other members of the AT&LU left the delegates conference and went down to the Heritage Quay store to demonstrate.
Thomas has been with the company for nine years and has served as Shop Steward for her fellow workers for one.
More on this story to come.
